The M3 is the flagship of the PromptSCAN product line and comes as a stand-alone device. The camera array is placed inside the machine and configurable for variable height, cameras and lenses. Based on the required film dimensions the resolution can be varied between 10 and 15 μm. The feed of film rolls is strictly automatic. The M3 version is optimized for large and specialized projects requiring custom configurations.
The M3 uses an array of high precision industrial cameras which accurately captures aerial images with a resolution of 15 µm (native pixel size) for 23 cm (9”) format films (12 µm for 5” format films).
All PromptSCAN machines provide the full range of scanning modes. M3 uses mono cameras and a changing light source to enable full color resolution and maximum dynamic range. The high dynamic range and separate colors also enables accurate capture of red-based negative films.
Automated exposure control means you do not need to make any manual adjustments.
We are using uniquely designed tension motors to reduce most of vibrations caused by the transport system to guarantee an almost oscillation-free and smooth operation.
